    Encounter 1
    A couple nights ago my gf was over. At around 2:30 AM she was getting ready to leave, so I was going to walk her to her car. We leave my room and start heading down the stairs (it's nearly pitch black). When we get to the bottom of the stairs, she instantly froze and said "do you see that"? I looked over to the living room, and about 10 ft away from us sorta hiding behind the sofa I see what looks like a dark shadow of a person. I cant really see any details, but it definitely looks like a person, and without being able to see a face it still looks like it is staring right at us. My gf then starts to freak out yelling at me to turn on the lights, then proceeds to run out the from door to her car. I chased after her, we sat in the car and talked for a minute, but she was too scared to talk about what had just happened.
    I know she was terrified because she is honestly scared of EVERYTHING. I'm actually surprised she would even acknowledge this by pointing it out. She's too scared to go on the ghost ride at disney land, or even watch "the house with the clock in its walls". Because of her fears, and the fact that I saw the same thing, I know what we saw is real.
    After she had calmed down, I walked back in the house to go to bed. She called me maybe 15 minutes later when she got home (her phone was dead) and asked me why I was standing at the door watching her and asked why I didn't move when she turned the light on and waved at me. (she ended up sitting in her car in front of my house for a few more minutes before leaving). I told her that I wasnt at the door, becasue I went straight back to my room, she started to panic again and said to look at my cameras and that we would talk tomorrow during the day when she felt more comfortable talking about it. I looked at the camera pointed at her car and what I saw was her car sitting there for a few minutes after i walked away, then she turned the interior lights on and gave a wtf guesture, turned the lights off, started to pull away, stopped again for about 30 seconds, then finally drove off. When we talked the next day, she said she thought she saw me standing at the door just watching her, and she thought it was me because she thought she saw the light reflecting off my glasses, so she turned on the light so i could she her and she could ask wtf I was doing since she couldnt call me because her phone was dead. Then she finally realized it wasnt me standing there, panicked and started to leave, but before leaving she stopped to look back at the door again and realized that there was nothing there before finally driving off. she also said she thought she saw something moving around her car.

    Encounter 2
    Last night, when we got back to my house from a date we ended up sitting in the car for a little while talking because we were having a very interesing conversation. It was approximately 1AM when I noticed a strange shadow figure in the middle of the street out of the car mirror. I decided not to say anything about it becasue i didnt want to scare her. i pulled out my phone to look at my security cameras so I could get a better view without alarming her by looking around. when i finally got the cameras pulled up I looked around and noticed this figure sitting on the porch of the house across from mine. a few minutes later we both noticed this thing quickly move past the car. then occasionally we would notice it happen again. some time later she looked out of the mirror and saw it standing maybe 50 ft behind the car just watching us. when she looked away and looked back it would be gone. then we both saw it just walking across the street in front of the car. She was too scared to get out of the car to come inside at this point, so we just ended up driving back to her place. It was around 2:30 AM when we finally left.

    Questions

    I have never noticed anything like this until recently, and only ever seen it when she is here. we were both completely sober on both occasions, not tired or sleep deprived. I have lived in this house my whole life (25 years), my family were the original owners. the house is maybe 40 years old. Neither of us has ever messed with anything paranormal. I never even believed in this kind of stuff until now, and I wouldnt have believed her if I didnt see it for myself. I have no idea why this would be happening now.

    what could we be seeing? are we in danger?
    how do I make it go away? she is too scared to be at my house at night now, and I dont want whatever this is to ruin our relationship.
    do you think it is here for me or her? could it possible be trying to scare her away for some reason? what do you guys think it wants? What should I do in this situation? I have never dealt with anything like this before and i'm honestly really scared. Any information or help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Your description was very well laid out. It may have several explanations. May I also ask you about the property your home is on and even the neighborhood? Is this an area that has a past to it of some sort?

    So far, no one has been reported seriously harmed by an entity of this description, which sounds like a shadowman. However, there are vairous explanations that may still come into play here. No past history of any occult or paranormal involvement? No Ouija boards?

    You need to understand that most dark energies feed off of fear. So try to tamp that down. You will find a St. Michael's prayer here on this forum as a sticky thread. Use that to ask for protection. You also need to tell it it is NOT WELCOME and state that it must leave your home and not touch, scare, or invade the dreams of you and your girlfriend. Start with that and, since this is new, see if that alone helps the situation. If not, there are many other steps that you can take, but I would say try this first.

    If you have video of this entity, do feel free to share here. They are difficult to catch vid, but it may help in figuing out what you have there.

    as far as I know the area does not have any kind of history like that. most of the people in the neighborhood are older and original owner's of the homes. like I said the neighborhood is maybe 40 years old, and none of the people seem like the type to use an Ouija board or conduct any type of strange rituals to attract whatever this is.

    after talking with my girlfriend some more she told me about some of her past experiences, which is leading me to believe this may have something to do with her. she told me that she used to have night terrors maybe 7-8 years ago. and on one occasion she woke up in the middle of the night to see a shadow like figure with glowing red eyes starring at her from the corner of the room. then it started to come towards her, and the moment it reached for her it vanished. but after that it stopped for a long time and she hasn't seen anything like it since, until now. and I think it's strange that it only occurs when she's at my house. she doesn't notice it at home. and I only notice it when she's here. that's what confuses me the most about the situation though. if it was here for her why would it only be happening at my house? that would make me think it wasn't because of her, but at the same time it only happens when she's here.

    I will definitely try what you suggested and see what happens. I just wish I had a better understanding of what it is and what it may want/ why it would be here now all of a sudden.

    the cameras weren't recording at the time I saw it on there because they are set to record on motion, but maybe I'll set them to record 24/7 to try to capture something. the video I do have was just her sitting in the car when she saw it standing at the front door, so there's nothing really interesting to see there.

    one more thing to note is that when we were sitting in the car and saw it moving around. it is either extremely fast, or there has to be more than 1.

    The one thing that pops into my mind is it is jealous of the relationship and wants it to break apart. In demonology, one of the things that happens is entitites try to break up relationships, marriages and families. This is often one of the first things that suffers when these entities appear.

    And yes...they are quick. Very quick! They can move beyond space and time. I still recommend you give a try to what I have suggested, then let's see if there is a change. Sometimes, these things will actually get worse when you start fighting them back with prayer, so be ready for that. We'll be here if you need us.

    that's very worrying, but does make a lot of sense. if it's trying to split us up that would explain why we only see it when we're together.

    I definitely have to try something, so I will try what you suggested. when would be the best time to try it? during the day, at night, after seeing the entity, when she's here or not? what would you recommend?

    thank you for the help.

    Hello welcome to PF,

    So sorry to head that y'all are experiencing discomfort. For me and my wife shadow spirits are so normal I don't even consider them paranormal. The majority of them are not evil in my experiences. We even see shadows of dogs and creatures.

    So if it makes you feel better shadow spirits have never hurt us, they can make you uncomfortable but you just tell them to leave.

    I think I read somewhere that where you see the spirit (like left to right or right to left) has a meaning. I don't know though.

    Spirits will be constantly coming and going that's all. Just movement. If things escalate like physical stuff then it's much different.

    In my personally opinion shadow spirits are not a need for concern. I am no in anyway trying to belittle you or your girlfriend's experiences and feelings because if you are feeling scared that is real. I am just trying to comfort you that in my experiences shadow spirits are just like the weather or the wind, they are natural processes that go on around you, and sometimes you can see the wind sometimes you can't, sometimes you can see the water vapor in the air (clouds) but sometimes you can't but the water vapor is still there we just can't perceive it the same. We feel it with humidity at that point.

    So it's kind of like that for me personally.

    The point I realized that not all shadow spirits are evil is when I saw dog shadow spirits and could see them wagging running at me. I am a huge dog lover so it makes sense that dog's shadow spirit would come up to me.

    However I have felt disturbed by a shadow spirit (not all people are good people you know) and I told it to leave and it did.

    And third also if your girlfriend is scared a lot (I think you said she is scared of everything) if something perhaps was dark or evil or whatever then it would keep coming back to her because she is feeding it with her fear. She needs to not be afraid and be strong and confident.

    If that hypothetically was occurring she would likely be marked physically eventually with scratches and also could be susceptible to mood swings that are abnormal to her normally. Like rage fits and fights. Those are some red flags you need to watch for that would indicate the need for concern.
